This is the website for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).  I’ll keep looking for resources to help you with rent.

 in response to lisa22v...   look for plasma donation in your area and also teaching hospitals or tech/ medical schools if they pay volunteers to have dental work done...etc... also if you want to make money from at home search virtual customer service or phone actress....good luck im in a simular situation but no husband and staying at abusive moms house w 3 kids.

 in response to precious101...   I'm so sorry to hear of your situation - I live in PA as well, & I know for a fact that if you call PECO & explain the situation to them, stressing the fact that your boys have asthma & that they they need the air conditioning/electricity for medical reasons, they WILL NOT turn off your electricity.
I wish you much luck and blessings...

During September, I first saw my mother struggling. By then we had our car reposed and my mother couldn’t afford to pay the layaway for my school clothes. I didn’t think that my clothes were big deal because I work 25 to 30 hrs a week, and I could buy clothes with my paycheck. I then started to give my mom 45$ a month to keep her phone on , so I could talk to her more , considering she works 5 to 6 days a week , sometimes pulls a double shift , and goes to school full time , plus I also work . My mom is the most hardworking person I know. She doesn’t get even half of what she deserves.
Recently we got a water bill in the mail for 1500$ we found out that there was a leak causing more than enough water every time we take a shower or flush a toilet. There is no way my mom could afford that; we can’t even afford a car. Well my mom started putting money in the bank for the bill, paying it little by little. They cut it off eventually. Well someone turned it on illegally without my mom knowing, she didn’t even know it had been cut off. Well a couple weeks went by and our water got cut off again. This time until the bill is completely paid off. My mom got another letter in the mail from the water company saying all her accounts from the bank had been frozen including mine and my brother’s account, because my mother’s name is on it. They took every last bit of money we had. Including the 92 cent in my brothers account, and the 60$ in my savings. There was over 600 $ in my mother’s account to pay for other bills including the rent, and lights, etc.
I’m terrified this Christmas won’t be a happy Christmas. I’m not asking for any thing from my mother because I know she can’t afford anything right now. All I want for Christmas is for her to be happy. I want to help her all a can, but obviously I cant help her much. Our life is continuously going downhill, and we need as much help as possible.
